Twenty five years ago today, the first National Lottery tickets went on sale.
Since Lottery funding began in 1997, Team GB has won a staggering 864 Olympic and Paralympic medals – and 28 of them have been in sailing, including 13 golds.
Britain has topped the medal table at four of the last five Olympics, and is the most successful Olympic sailing nation of all time.
Simply put, we would not be where we are today without the help of the National Lottery and its players.
Today, we say thank you.
